Signed Language Interpreting (SLI) prototypically means interpreting to and from a signed language from either a spoken language or another signed language. However, the typical situation is interpreting between a spoken and a signed language. We note here that signed languages are naturally occurring languages that are independent from spoken languages. There is also a process known as transliteration, where a spoken language is literally encoded and transmitted on the hands, but this is different from interpreting to/from a natural signed language.
